*Open: Gears Spur and Helical Gears Calculation of Load Capacity *

In line with the International practices for designing of gears, load capacity of cylindrical gears is evaluated based on limitation by contact stresses and bending stresses. Accordingly, the revision is being presented in three parts so that the standard may be utilised more effectively. The Part 1 of this standard deals with the introduction, symbols and general influence factors for design of gears. Detailed step by step calculation procedures for calculation of load factors taking into account the effect of surface durability ( pitting ) is given in Part 2. There is appropriate reference to tables and graphs for arriving at various factors. Part 3 covers the calculation procedure for calculating the load factors with respect to bending strength. These parts have been presented in such a format that the standard may be directly used for arriving at various factors relevant for calculations. In order to help the designer, examples of use of the two sections have been included in the Annex A and B to the standard.

The formulae and tables given in this standard apply to the calculation of load capacity of cylindrical external gears — spur, helical and double-helical; with peripheral speeds less than 50 m/s.
